Its all about the eyes

The second half of this semester first year grads are focusing on EYE TRACKING. We’re exploring ideations for speculative gaze-based interfaces. We’re asking hard questions about the eyes, our gaze, and the future. I love thinking about this question in particular: When it comes to an interface, what can our eyes/the gaze do that the mouse cannot?

While perusing the internet/going down the rabbit hole, like I normally do during project research, I came across this video.

In this case, eyetracking told us some interesting things about musicians, reading music, practice, and comprehension. This isn’t necessarily design related, but can these types of projects inform our design this semester? We shall see.
